Game Summary

David Fry slammed a two-run homer, while Andrés Giménez followed up with a solo shot in Cleveland’s explosive three-run fourth inning, propelling the Guardians to a 7-0 shutout victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, breaking their three-game losing streak.

Logan Allen delivered a stellar performance, pitching six scoreless innings to secure the win for Cleveland and maintain their position atop the AL Central standings. Despite being struck on the low back by a comebacker from Tommy Pham on his first pitch of the game, Allen persevered with resilience, impressing manager Stephen Vogt. Vogt commended Allen’s toughness, highlighting his exceptional six shutout innings.

Reflecting on his previous outing, where he struggled against Detroit, Allen expressed determination to bounce back and contribute to his team’s success. His focus on rectifying mistakes and delivering a solid performance paid off as he effectively mixed his pitches and trusted his defense to shut down the White Sox’s offense.

The trio of Nick Sandlin, Hunter Gaddis, and Sam Hentges maintained Cleveland’s dominance on the mound, each pitching a hitless inning. Chicago’s four-game winning streak came to an end as they were held scoreless for the 10th time this season, the highest in the majors.

Estevan Florial and Brayan Rocchio contributed to Cleveland’s offensive onslaught, with Florial delivering a triple, a double, and an RBI, while Rocchio added another RBI.

Despite a strong effort from White Sox starter Michael Soroka, who allowed only four hits in 5 1/3 innings, Cleveland’s offense capitalized on key opportunities to secure the win. Soroka’s solid start was overshadowed by Fry’s and Giménez’s homers in the fourth inning, extending Cleveland’s lead.

Cleveland further widened the gap in the sixth inning, capitalizing on defensive errors and passed balls to add three unearned runs to their tally, sealing their victory over Chicago.
